Enactus India, a subsidiary of Enactus Worldwide, an international non-profit organization of students dedicated to making the world a better place through entrepreneurial action, hosted the Enactus India National Competition on June 17th in Mumbai where college teams showcased their social welfare projects before a jury of imminent leaders from the corporate world.
A winner will be chosen from all the 36 countries that are part of the Enactus worldwide network at the prestigious Enactus World Cup 2017 to be held in London, England from 26-28 September 2017.
This year though, Enactus India had quite some surprise planned for the teams as they changed the qualifying procedure to enter into the Nationals. Cut off was on the basis of a form and the number of teams invited to Mumbai to present their projects were reduced. Many teams who couldn‚Äôt make it were quite dissatisfied.
Mehakk Jain,President of Enactus Shaheed Bhagat Singh College says “The selection procedure this year was extremely competitive and completely different as compared to last year. It helped us get a better insight of the loopholes we had and where we needed to work more”
Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies¬†emerged victorious second time in a row at the Nationals this year. They presented their two flagship projects : Project Raahat & Project Udaan¬†which are focused on Swachh Bharat and Skill Development Programme, policies which are gaining the most hype right now in the country.
The other finalist teams included:-
Ramjas College, Delhi University
S. S. Bhatnagar College
Delhi Technical University(DTU)
Shaheed Sukhdev had managed to bag the second position in the World Cup held in Toronto, Canada last year, with Canada at the first position, winning over Germany and Nigeria from the top four.
